Happy 4th of July!

Yay! It's July 4th! I have so many fond childhood memories of July 4th- and decorations were always apart of them! My Mom and Grandma always had flags in yard, bunting banners hanging from outside windows, and cut out stars on the kitchen walls- all to make the 4th extra special!

Today with my own children, I want them to have very festive Independence days too! So every year we bring out the July 4th tote and make the house patriotic!

I decided to mix up new and old decor. The red, white and blue paper circles I already had from my son's birthday party a couple years ago (I originally bought them at Party City). The glitter star is from Hobby Lobby. The darling July 4th printable I found on pinterest via the36avenue.com. The blue and red stripe banners I bought it target a few years ago. The "Love" I just picked up at JoAnne's for $9.99.

Put it all together and it works! Happy Fourth of July everyone!
